Brand: Yamaha
Product Code: RX-A2080BL

Price: $1,599.95

The Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A2080 9.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver. It delivers up to 140W of power per channel at 8 Ohms and features Dolby Atmos and DTS:X compatibility for object-based audio support. Built-in Bluetooth and AirPlay support allows the receiver to wirelessly stream music from compatible sources, such as smartphones and tablets, while Yamaha's Compressed Music Enhancer helps to deliver optimized sound quality.

Onboard Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity allows the AVENTAGE RX-A2080 to access music from your connected computer or NAS. Amazon Alexa compatibility enables you to control certain functions of the receiver with just your voice through your Alexa-enabled devices. With seven HDMI inputs and three outputs, this receiver can act as a video switcher for your HD source components. It will pass through HDR UHD 4K signals and will upscale non-UHD signals to near-4K quality for enhanced viewing of lower-resolution sources when paired with a UHD display. The receiver also has a USB port for accessing media stored on USB flash drives. YPAO-RSC multipoint sound optimization will calibrate the receiver to your speakers and room setup for a tailored listening experience.



Total Purity Concept


The Total Purity Concept is designed to encompass high-drive amp technology, high-purity preamplification, anti-vibration technology, and independent, pure power supplies. The receiver has fully discrete power amplifiers that help minimize distortion and adopts pure independent power supplies, allowing dedicated power supplies for the analog and digital circuitry to prevent digital noise from affecting analog circuitry. The anti-vibration heat sinks are designed to suppress vibration from transistors and sound pressure.


Anti-Resonance Technology


The Anti-Resonance Technology Wedge is a fifth foot in the center of the receiver. It is engineered to dampen vibrations from the power transformer, power transistors, and heat sinks, as well as vibrations that might be caused by the sound from the speakers.


Foundational Design


The feet of the receiver feature a high-density structure that utilizes both straight and curved ribs to enhance strength and damping performance. This is designed to enhance installation stability and disperse chassis resonance, effectively eliminating external vibration. This helps to enhance low-range response, reduce resonance peaks in the mid- and high-range, and provide dynamic sound and accurate reproduction.


Aluminum Front Panel


The AVENTAGE RX-A2080 features an aluminum front panel to help shield sensitive circuitry from external noise and electronic radiation generated by dimmer switches, fluorescent lighting, video monitors, and the like. This helps ensure optimum sonic performance in a variety of installation environments.


Symmetrical Power Amplifier


The interior of the receiver has been circuit-routed and built so that the left and right channels are physically and electrically isolated, helping to maximize channel separation and enhance the signal-to-noise ratio while also helping to achieve an open sound stage.


H-Shaped Frame


The receiver is reinforced internally with cross-members in an H-shape to help provide a rigid, stable frame. This is designed to help reduce chassis vibration to virtually zero, even during high volume output, helping to maintain audio quality.


Two ESS 384 kHz / 32-bit SABRE DACs (ES9007S)


Incorporating dual ES9007S SABLE DACs from ESS Technology helps further enhance the signal-to-noise ratio and achieve up to 120 dB of dynamic range.




This AI technology built into the DSP analyzes the scene of your content and creates a surround effect to help reproduce it with augmented realism. In real time, this AI analyzes scenes by focusing on distinct sound elements, such as dialogue, background music, ambient sounds, and sound effects, and automatically enhances the surround effect to help provide greater realism.


HDR & UHD Support Over HDMI


This receiver can pass-through UHD video at 60 frames per second, as well as the HDR10, Dolby Vision, and HLG HDR formats for enhanced contrast and colors.


Three HDMI Outputs


With three HDMI outputs, you can simultaneously connect to your display, projector, and other devices to watch two separate video sources at the same time, or broadcast the same video source across all outputs.


HDMI Zone Switching


You can transmit video or audio content to a display or home theater system in another room (Zone 2) via HDMI, allowing you to choose whether you want to enjoy the same content in the main room or different content.


Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and AirPlay Compatibility


Built-in Wi-Fi allows you to connect the receiver to your wireless router, simplifying system connections for music streaming or enjoying networked audio from your computer or NAS. Bluetooth connectivity is also onboard, allowing you to stream audio from your compatible device into the receiver, or out from the receiver to another Bluetooth device, such as a pair of headphones.


Dolby Atmos & DTS:X


These object-based sound technologies are designed to create realistic surround sound, positioning and moving individual sounds to nearly any virtual point in your room, including overhead.


7.2-Channel Pre-Outs


Connect an external amplifier to drive your speakers for enhanced sound quality.


Control via the MusicCast App


The free MusicCast app puts control of the receiver into the palm of your hand. Access your sources and streaming services, adjust volume and sound settings, and link with other MusicCast devices for simultaneous playback throughout your home.


Voice Control with Amazon Alexa and MusicCast


With Alexa voice control integration, all you have to do is ask. Use any Alexa-enabled device, such as your Echo or Echo Dot, to control either the receiver by itself or multiple MusicCast devices throughout your home.


Built-In Streaming Services & Spotify Connect


Explore a world of music with built-in streaming services, including Spotify Connect. Syncing your playlists and likes from your smart device to the receiver and discovering new music becomes even easier with the receiver.


YPAO-RSC (Reflected Sound Control) with 3D, Multipoint Measurement, and Precision EQ


YPAO-RSC analyzes the room acoustics with the included microphone to tune your system for optimal sound in your room. It uses precision EQ calculation to help achieve natural room acoustics. It also uses RSC to correct early reflections for enhanced sound. Additionally, DSP Effect Normalization adjusts the room acoustics according to the reflected sounds of each CINEMA DSP program.


Phono Input


Enjoy music from your vinyl collection with your turntable through the dedicated phono input.


Wireless Surround Speakers with Optional Equipment


Combine the receiver with optional MusicCast wireless speakers and enjoy the convenience of a home theater with wireless surround speakers in a 5.1-channel setup.


MusicCast for Whole-Home Music


Start with the AVENTAGE RX-A2080 receiver in your home theater and expand to other rooms over time with optional MusicCast speakers, soundbars, or hi-fi gear. Stream your music and TV audio throughout the house over your existing Wi-Fi network.
